That would be cool. I have some explorer seats I need to tinker with and install lol. But driving 3 or so hours would be the downer.

Yep lol.
There are quite a few members all from the metro area. I'm sure u could set up a garage day lol.


We really need to start recruiting more MN members.
I just purchased 100 frf cards for like $7.95 thru the Frf store.
So I will be doing my part.
When I became a "paid 'Contributing' member" (for $15a year) the package Tom sent me had two FRF.com decals and some cards, which I already handed out and put on the windshields of rangers in my area.

There was this one time I came out of Ace hardware and a girl was getting out of a white 2wd ranger, she left her window down, so I dropped a card in there lol.

If we want new MN members we gotta buy some cards, which is supporting the website and Tom, and start handing them out.

I'm down to go purchase some cards and contribute.

We did this on another local forum and it seemed to work out pretty well.

Anybody live near Hudson, WI interested in helping me find a vaccum leak? I can and will pay you for your effort. I am truly stumped and am ready to junk the motor. I can even drive to you at 7 - 9 MPG

I would love to help, but I am far away on the west side of Mn.
Have u tried taking it to a dealership service center to do, what I think is called a smoke test??? That is how they find vac leaks. Its not cheap, but it would be faster and cheaper than driving around to Mn.
I wouldn't dare junk a motor because of a vac leak!! Hell if u pull it out and do that, u will probably find the leak when your pulling it out lol.

I haven't had a chance to read your thread, but I will tonight.
Im on my phone at work lol.

Yeah, I don't want to jack this thread, so please take my headache to the other thread. Just hoping I had a close neighbor who could help me out for cash money!

Willing to travel!

Well tomorrow is the big wedding day.
I have uncles and aunts and cousins and brothers and sister up from the south, all visiting and having fun.
Rehearsal and the grooms dinner went well tonight.
Only bad thing so far is we are down one bridesmaid. She had a collapsed lung on Thursday and is in the hospital, so we have to improvise with 5 groomsmen and only 4 bridesmaids.

And today when I was going to pick up my tux, I saw a sweet cool blue (98-00) Ranger ext cab step side, it was lifted with maybe 31s or 32s, it either had a body lift or a suspension lift, but it seemed like it was taller, it also had a front bull bar with lights.
Would have been nice if I had my frf cards to put one on it lol.

I talked to the guy and he's waiting on a reply from a guy with a new topper that if he buys it, he will sell the one in the add!! I'm hoping he gets the new one!!! He said he would be reusing the clamps, where would I get a set of those? Price?
